Have Guitar Will Travel – 048 Featuring Rod Abernethy

James Patrick Regan speaks with guitarist/composer Rod Abernethy in the new episode of “Have Guitar Will Travel.” A native of North Carolina, Rod teaches musical-composition courses at the UNC School for the Arts. He and James discuss his musical life beginning with that ever-vital first guitar (a Gibson SG Special), playing in rock bands as a kid, and why he has always been drawn to acoustic guitars liks his ’54 J-200. They touch on the guitars at Rod’s studio, share thoughts on amp builders, and reveal Rod’s favorite pastime – building steampunk robots! And of course they dig into his new instrumental album, Without a Word.
